It is not yet clear if people with deferred action will receive a document that states they have been granted deferred action or whether they will only receive an EAD.
It is not yet clear whether people with deferred action will be able to travel outside of the U.S. USCIS has promised to resolve this question.
Whether or not people with deferred action will be able to get a driver’s license will likely depend on the laws of each state, which determine what documentation is acceptable to prove state residency and legal status.
Whether or not people with deferred action will qualify to receive in-state tuition at colleges and universities will also likely depend on state laws, which determine what documentation is acceptable to prove state residency.
USCIS now has a hotline to answer questions about deferred action. The hotline will be available from 8am to 8pm in English and in Spanish. The number is 1-800-375-5283.
